For a gateway to the airport they don't have scales. The elevator broke in the middle of the night and it would have been ok if I didn't have two heavy pieces of lugguge on the third floor and shuttle to the airport in 10 minutes.

In most other aspects the hotel was satisfactory. Clean, decently decorated, and nice staff for a 2 star hotel. However, being in room 207 and in very close proximity to El Camino Real road; I received little sleep at night. There appeared to be little to no sound insulation on the windows or wall. I heard every vehicle that passed,... More

I stayed there the night before taking my flight back home. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the desk staff is very helpful. I had an issue with my flight reservation and they let me use the reception's phone to deal with my issue, which I appreciated. The airport shuttle service is efficient as well. You can call them...

Stayed here for 3 nights, as a medical licensing test centre was nearby. Definitely not the worst place I've been! It was clean, well-priced, and in a relatively good location. The shuttle pickup was efficient, and the room was big with a fridge and microwave. It's a 15 minute walk to the BART station. Once on the BART it is... More

Stayed for 3 nights. All in all a nice place to stay but there is nothing to do in the area in forms of entertainment. No Pool. No fitness area. They do provide continental breakfast of the limited variety. Small place in quiet neighborhood on a main street. Very close to airport. Choose this location for that reason and that... More

I stayed here a while back following my arrival in San Fran late at night (1am) on a flight from the east coast. The location is convenient, only a short but expensive cab ride (20 bucks for an 8 minute ride) from SFO. The night clerk was very helpful, and when I got to my room the TV wasnt working... More

When writing these review thingys, I really try to be objective and give the benefit of any doubt. Having worked in the hospitality/hotel industry myself, I am sensitive to accommodating the guest with what they requested and what they are paying for as well as providing "above and beyond the call of duty" in terms of service, whenever possible. Put... More

We stayed here while visiting family in San Bruno. It's plenty clean, but not deluxe or exceptional. The motel has been upgraded, the electric outlets are in weird places that indicate the rooms weren't always the way they are now. Our room needed: a second luggage rack, more towels, a guide to cable TV channels, and directions about controlling the... More

Nothing fancy but a very solid hotel conveniently close to SFO. An excellent, reasonably priced place to stay if you're departing at zero dark thirty. Friendly, helpful staff. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

We had a late-arriving flight from the East Coast and needed a place in the ariport area. We had rented a car and were looking for free parking also. Presto--- Gateway Inn! Make no mistake: this is a very modest place, and its price (quite reasonable) dictates its amenities (quite modest). There is a modest continental breakfast at which one... More
